2day is National Tequila Day... Check out the TSP Tequila Supreme

This here holiday needs no lengthy introduction as to why it exists or the benefits of partaking in it, it simply is a great day and must be celebrated. Just what are we speaking of you ask? Well today Ladies & Gents, just so happens to be National Tequila Day and with that we must kick a few classic recipes out to our readers as well as a new Libation recipe to get the days events pushing along as planned.

4 oz Tequila (whatever brand you choose, we suggest Patron or Don Julio)
2 oz Lemon Juice
2 oz Sweet Vermouth
2 ½ tsp Honey
4 dashes Bitters (found in almost every liquor and grocery store)
Crushed Ice
Lemons (washed thoroughly and cut into slices for garnishing)
*Drink Mixer w/ strainer
2 Martini Glasses Chilled

Combine tequila, lemon juice and sweet vermouth, honey and bitters in a clean drink mixer / shaker (a previously used one will give this drink an odd flavor, make sure to wash it if you have made other drinks previously to making this cocktail.)
Add ice, cover and shake until the outside of the mixer is cold.
Strain into 2 martini glasses; garnish with lemon twists.
